Sustainability is Embedded in Nearly All Aspects of Packaging

A quick review of current packaging trends starts with sustainability. How could it not? But there’s more, too.

As a journalist, I hear and see a lot more of what’s happening then I can ever digest, analyze, and present to the packaging community. But this flood of information helps me stay afloat of the top trends in major areas of packaging — design, production, supply chain. I actively look for shifts you need to know about and then bring you new solutions.

How do these top packaging trends affect you?

• Sustainability’s long tail;
• The challenges and (yes) sophistication of cannabis packaging;
• Ecommerce gains;
• AI (artificial intelligence or something else?) and our people problem.

In addition to these topics, I also answer the question of “What’s next?” in this 16-minute video interview that took place at the WestPack 2021 show on August 10, and was reprised for the West+ companion virtual event still happening through October 13, 2021. Check out the West+ educational sessions, exhibits, and networking opportunities here.
